Snowy Scenes and Sketches!

I've been on roll and this sketch from Card Patterns got my creative juices flowing again today.

Click the sketch to go directly to the sketch blog post.

So I decided to combine it with the new challenge over on the Your Next Stamp challenge blog today. This week's challenge was to create a snowy scene on your card. So I grabbed my new "Ellie Building a Snowman" stamp and set to work combining the two....

Winter Scene

supplies: stamp, Your Next Stamp; patterned papers, Lily Bee Design; ink, Copic, Memento, Ranger; cardstock, Gina K. Designs; edge punch, Fiskars; die cut snowflake, Spellbinder's; carrot pin, My Little Bit of Whimsy; twine, The Twinery; other, thread, mini snowflake.

I bought these cute little carrot pins from My Little Bit of Whimsy in the fall and I knew it would be perfect on this card... I mean what would a snowman be without a carrot nose???

I hope your Saturday is going snowing-ly!!! Happy stamping!!
